Customized. Responsible. Affordable. Community. And Virtual.

AEA recognizes the tremendous strain that the Corona Virus has caused and is continuing to cause among study abroad offices, students and faculty, who have had their programs cancelled. AEA is no exception. And it certainly hurts. However, we are looking at creative solutions and are offering Customized Virtual Experiences to anyone who would like to repurpose their study abroad program, develop a new program, or add to their existing course, virtually.

Celebrating 15 years in 2020, AEA is proudly family-owned. We combine friendly, professional, detailed program development with knowledgeable, experienced and flexible local teams in more than 95 countries, including the US and Canada. We look forward to welcoming you to our tight-knit community – in person, or virtually.

AEA operates programs, and can arrange custom online content- in nearly 100 countries. Ask us about a virtual program – or meetings – if travel has been cancelled at your institution, or if you would just like to add virtual meetings with interesting people to your existing course.

Read Testimonials

AEA was very knowledgeable about Cambodia and provided excellent advice as we planned a program to a new destination I had never visited. Our logistical arrangements were excellent, and our group was very pleased with the hotels and guide services provided through AEA. AEA was also very flexible with our continuously changing itinerary, allowing us to develop a program that was dynamic and responsive to group needs, while offering access to individuals whom we would not have been able to connect with ourselves. We are happy to recommend AEA to anyone planning a study abroad program.
